Yeah, I'd DEFINATLY call AT&T before leaving the country with one of their phones.
While travling outside the U.S. your voice is billed at a per minute rate ALWAYS, rather then being deducted from an allotted minute balance like your used to.
http://www.wireless.att.com/learn/international/roam ... »
here is where you can get the per minute rates.
There is also information on this site of how to make those rates cheaper by added the correct feature. (look at the at&t world traveler)
In addition Data is charged differently, on roaming charges per KB for every bit of data transfered.
And messaging is also charged the same way, per message at a roaming charge.
I'd call AT&T, let them know where you're going, and make sure they transfer you to the International Provisioning Center (IPC) to make sure the features get added.
To reach AT&T dial 611 from your cell phone or 1-800-331-0500 from a landline.
I get calls every day where people didn't know about roaming charges and alot of the time there is little I can do for them and they are stuck with 1000 bills for a 3 day vacation. CALL THEM!
